This whole story had enough wrong with it to write a whole new story about just how it was covered.
#1 it isn't the gun he claims it is.
My wife and I put that on a big screen to zoom and look at and play with a bit and it never gets better. First, that IS NOT an AK-47. It looks, near
as I can tell, to be a "MAC-90" or similar Clinton-Ban Era knock off that has the competition stock to replace the traditional pistol grip purely a
means to bypass the Clinton AWB restrictions by characteristic. When people like Feinstein are railing against people mod'ing a gun to make it legal
outside a ban? That little stunt with the stock is one I know pisses her off. California went Ape when that first started and they fixed their little
wagon for doing it in that state pretty quick!
#2 It's as unloaded as he says it is...and his behavior on other things doesn't inspire trust for this.
Next... The comment quoted in a story yesterday was that a member asked him to remove his thumb from the TRIGGER LOCK. I saw that quoted in two
different places too. On a high zoom to him holding that up like a trophy or something, I can't see anything like a trigger lock. I see a magazine
locked in place and I see a closed bolt.....making it impossible to KNOW if it's unloaded or not except to take HIS word for it.
Last though... as the stories were saying, this WAS legal, was it not? Multiple stories mention that the police there knew in advance what he had and
was planning to do here .. and so it would appear he crossed his t's and dotted his i's like a good lawmaker should. He just doesn't know jack squat
about what he's holding or how to safely handle it in the first place.
^^ Thats the largest version of the photo I could find online at the moment if anyone else wants to play with it with zooming in and out.
